Conferences

Faculty has organized international conference “Mechanics” for the last 17 years. Conference includes presentations on the following subjects: cyclic strength of materials and structural elements, mechanical technologies, dynamics of machinery and systems, engineering materials and their application.

International scientific conference “Transport Means” has been organized each year since 2003. Students of Bachelor and Master degree studies of Transport Engineering actively participate in transport engineering section of the annual conference “Mechanical Engineering” for young scientists.

Every three years (since 1990) international conference “Materials Engineering” is organized by Baltic Materials Research Societies; it analyses the issues of powder metallurgy, founding, welding, tribology, engineering materials, new experimental equipment. Material of the conference is published in the journal “Materials Science”.

International conference “Strength, Durability and Stability of Materials and Structures” is organized every four years.
